MediaWiki talk:Bad image list

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


The images listed on MediaWiki:Bad image list are prohibited by technical means from being displayed inline on pages, besides specified exceptions. Images on the list have normally been used for widespread vandalism where user blocks and page protections are impractical.


Making requests: Requests for additions, removals, or exceptions may be made on this page. Any administrator can make changes to the list. If there is no response after a reasonable time, consider repeating a request at the Administrators' noticeboard.
Posting to the list: The format is as follows: Only bulleted list items (lines starting with "*") are considered. The first link on a line must be the link to the high-risk image. It is recommended that you use an initial colon in this link, so people can view this page without seeing all the restricted images. Any subsequent links on the same line are exceptions, i.e. articles where that image is allowed to be displayed inline. Text outside of links is ignored and can be used for comments. Piped links cannot be used. Please check the spelling of potential duplicate images before removing.
Image description page: A bot will place {{Restricted use}} on the image description page. This will advise users how to request that the image to be allowed on articles (that is, to expand the except list for it).
Removal from the list: When removing deleted images from the list, please double-check that the relevant image talk page has been deleted as well.


Would you please add the Hentai article to the list of articles for which this image is allowed? That article has linked to the image since this edit, but the link is dead, possibly since the image was restricted.—DocWatson42 (talk) 01:47, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

Bump (please). The image is on-topic for the article in question.—DocWatson42 (talk) 07:18, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

Improper use of image[edit]

About a week ago I found that a vandal had inserted File:External female genitalia.jpg into a random article and the image did display on the page. I messaged an admin about it not being blacklisted, but I think the message may have been overlooked, and I don't see this image on the blacklist currently. Believe it should probably be done.

File:Fat bastard.jpeg[edit]

This has being used to vandalise Clive Palmer and Chris Evans (presenter). Can it be restricted for use on the one page where it belongs, Fat Bastard (character)? -- John of Reading (talk) 07:26, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

File:Tarzan_(2013_film).jpg and File:YuanEmperorAlbumGenghisPortrait.jpg[edit]
